This sediment filter is mostly used in water purifiers. This item is compatible with machines that do sand filtration and is available in multigrade sand filter form. Sediment filters eliminate any dirt, sand, dust, and other debris that can fit within their micron capacity as well as any visible particulate matter. Turbidity in water is also eliminated by sediment filters. Chemicals, heavy metals, microorganisms, and dissolved particle matter cannot be removed by sediment filters.
